Abstract

Infection is an all-too-common complication of combat-related injuries. The Prevention of Combat-Related Infections Guidelines Panel was established to review pertinent data that have become available since 2007 on prevention of these infections and to update guidelines by this group previously published in 2008. These updated guidelines, Guidelines for the Prevention of Infections Associated With Combat-related Injuries: 2011 Update, are published in this Journal of Trauma supplement along with evidence-based medicine reviews of the supporting data.
